Launched just over two weeks ago on an invite-only basis. Oggl is more than just a photo sharing app, as users have the ability to adjust filters and edit photos after they are taken. The company touts the service as a “capture-first” shooting experience. It comes with preloaded filters like Landscape, Food and Nightlife for situational shooting.
The release of the app to all iOS users also includes new features. Users are now able to set exposure, double-tap an image to “love” it, and update their profiles. The “curate” function of the app allows users to share images to their Oggl profiles, as well as to curate images from other users. Additionally, users can share their images to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Tumblr and Flickr.
Oggl is an offshoot of Hipstamatic’s photo editing app for iOS, which is known simply as “Hipstamatic.”
Oggl is available as a free download in the Apple App Store and is compatible with devices running iOS 6.0 or later.
